In honor of the retirement of Virginia Massey-Burzio, Head of Research Services and Collections and undisputed Queen of the Suggestion Board, we present the following quotes:

Theodore Roosevelt, 1910

The secret of joy in work is contained in one word—excellence. To know how to do something well is to enjoy it.
Pearl S. Buck, 1964

To love what you do and feel that it matters—how could anything be more fun?
Katharine Graham, 1974

People are not the best because they work hard. They work hard because they are the best.
Bette Midler, 1980

Libraries are reservoirs of strength, grace and wit, reminders of order, calm and continuity, lakes of mental energy, neither warm nor cold, light nor dark.
Germaine Greer, 1991 

If you think education is expensive—try ignorance.
Derek Bok, 1979

We’ll miss you!
